Spaceman: Between Stardust and Solitude


This recently released movie is about a Czechoslovakian astronaut who goes for a mission in a ship with a broken toilet and meets a talking spider – starring Adam Sandler. Despite the plot, this is not a comedy movie.

However, beyond its quirky premise lies a deeper exploration of themes such as loneliness, redemption, and the innate human desire for connection. Does it effectively translate these ideas into a cinematic masterpiece? Let’s delve deeper.

Price To Reach The Start

Once dream becomes obsession

Dreams propel us forward, pushing us to strive for greatness. Yet, when ambition turns into obsession, we risk losing sight of what truly matters. The pursuit of excellence can become isolating, leaving us adrift in a sea of solitude.

This existential dilemma lies at the heart of the film. As our protagonist, Jakub, embarks on his solitary mission to gather stardust from the enigmatic gas cluster known as Chopra, he grapples with the weight of his isolation. The director adeptly captures Jakub’s emotional journey, painting a vivid portrait of confinement amidst the vast expanse of space.

Loneliness Among The Stars

Cramped setting of the movie

Loneliness permeates every frame of the movie. From the cramped confines of the spacecraft to the incessant hum of malfunctioning machinery, the audience is enveloped in a sense of claustrophobia. Yet, amidst this desolation, a glimmer of hope emerges in the form of Hanus, an otherworldly spider who serves as a catalyst for Jakub’s introspection.

Hanus’s ability to evoke memories from Jakub’s past breathes life into the narrative, propelling the story forward with renewed purpose. However, while the addition of Hanus adds depth to the plot, the film ultimately falls short in its execution.

Not At LightSpeed Pace

The entire story could’ve been told in 40 minutes, to be honest

Despite its poignant themes and compelling characters, the movie’s pacing leaves much to be desired. Clocking in at a lengthy two hours, the narrative feels unnecessarily drawn out, prolonging scenes that could have been condensed for a more impactful viewing experience.

Jakub’s introduction, his backstory, and his interactions with both his wife and Hanus could have been streamlined into a more concise storyline. Instead, the film meanders through its runtime, diluting its potential impact as a thought-provoking piece of cinema.

Final Frontier 

We still don’t know much about Hanus

While the director’s ambition to create a profound cinematic experience is evident, the film ultimately falls short of its aspirations. Hindered by its sluggish pace, underdeveloped lore, and ambiguous ending, it fails to leave a lasting impression on its audience.

As such, a rating of 4 out of 10 seems warranted. Though the film’s intentions are noble, its execution ultimately fails to soar to the heights of true cinematic greatness.

    Student by day, writer by night. If it's cinematic, I'll get it right. I'm a big fan of superheroes, cinemas, science, and history. But most of all, I just love good stories.
